      BB: $26.62 - VPIP: 39, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 1.8, Hands: 51
      Hero (UTG): $31.88 -
      MP: $22.75 - VPIP: 34, PFR: 12, 3B: 0, AF: 4.5, Hands: 82

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG with 7 :heart: 7 :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.87, MP calls $0.87, 3 folds, BB calls $0.62

      Flop: ($2.71) 7 :club: 4 :spade: T :diamond: (3 players)
      BB bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, MP raises to $5.50, BB calls $4, Hero ???

      What is the best action to take here? I am finding arguments for many possibilities here:
      -shoving - just take the money from them now when they think they're strong and prevent them from seeing an overcard to the board on the turn.
      -raising to 11.5-12 - takes more value but can scare the shit out of them as it looks like the obvious nuts
      -calling - keep them both in the pot but an overcard to the board might slow the action and my potential pay off

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Overall, I guess while there ain't even that many draws you should be able to Call. But of course you can as well just ship it vs those stations. Doubt it's going to change much. There are still some draws like 89/56 and some GSs. We would just hate us long time on the turn if some of them completes. :D

      Best Regards.
